Tottenham skipper Hugo Lloris insists Premier League standings will mean nothing for the 90-odd minutes of today’s north London derby.
Lloris and his pals are riding high and, after just 10 games, already have an eight-point advantage on the Gunners.
But the keeper, who is a selection doubt for the clash with Spurs’s arch-rivals, said: “You don’t look at the table when you play the derby against Arsenal.
“You are just focused on the moment.
“We know it means a lot for the fans and you just want to win.
“For pride, for sharing emotion with the fans.
“But of course it’s not enough in the season.
